Joel's arresting imagery--blasting trumpet, darkened sun and marching hosts--has shaped the church's eschatological vision of a day of wrath.

Twenty-five-hundred years after they were first born, those prophetic words

Overview

Joel's arresting imagery--blasting trumpet, darkened sun and marching hosts--has shaped the church's eschatological vision of a day of wrath.

Amos's ringing indictments--callous oppression, heartless worship and self-seeking gain--have periodically awakened the conscience of God's people.

Twenty-five-hundred years after they were first born, those prophetic words never fail to awaken and arrest. Viewed against the background of their culture and society, artistry and context, these visions and oracles take on even more vibrant colors and cleaner lines.

This commentary is a valuable guide to the fascinating world and challenging word of these two prophets. Ever mindful of the wider context and composition of these ancient but living texts, David Hubbard shows how Joel and Amos addressed Israel's mind and heart.

The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series

Editorial Reviews

Craig Blomberg
"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
D. A. Carson
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
Peter Adam
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."
Donald A. Hagner
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."
